    I just got a 622 and I want a way to get recorded programs to a DVD. what is the best one to get with the 622 I want a cheap one that gets the job done efficiently. Also is there any way I can get HD on TV2? I have to HD TVs one in the HT room and one DLP. I put the 622 with the Home theater but is there any way i can get HD on the DLP with only one receiver.

    All outputs on the 622 are active at the same time. So, if you can run an HDMI or Component cable (whichever you are not already using) from the 622 to the DLP you can get the same programming displayed in HD on both sets at the same time. You can not get independent programming on the two sets in HD.

    I don't have a recommendation for the DVD since I don't use one but I would think almost any would work fine. You just need to be sure it connects with a connection type you still have available. If you have already used the HDMI and Component connections you either have to use the S-Video or get a HDMI or Component switch.

    You don't ask much, do you? Check avsforum and see which ones record letterboxed content best. The cheap ones (less than $150) often don't set the output aspect ratio flag properly.

    I use a upconverting dvd recorder on my 622 and I use my 622 in single mode so the picture looks the same on my tv1 as tv2 . NO letter boxing on hd that way. My picture fills the screen and hd looks very good on dvd upconverted.

    I, too, have been giving some thought to getting a Philips DVDR3575H 160G HDD DVD Recorder w/ ATSC tuner and I have been following the AVS Forum on it.
    http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showthread.php?t=830253 It looks pretty good to me. It looks like WalMart has these for $298.00.
